One of Canada’s happiest and most well-loved faces has sadly crossed over the rainbow bridge.
Smiley, the blind golden retriever who’s been working as a therapy dog for most of his 15 years, was put to sleep after a three-month bout with cancer.
Just ask his 200,000 followers in Instagram.
“Not easy to type this out … they found a mass/tumour on Smiley’s stomach and one on his liver,” she posted. “The dog who I thought would live forever doesn’t have much time left with us. We are obviously shocked and devastated. He has been so happy lately with extra pep in his step, so this is so hard to comprehend.”
CBC Toronto created a video that celebrates this incredibly kind canine’s life, and it struck a chord with thousands of Smiley fans around the world.
